  • Orioles acquire INF Jackson in Rule 5 draft
    Phillies selected INF Drew Jackson from the Dodgers with the 11th pick in the Rule 5 draft and traded him to the Orioles for international bonus dollars.

    Advice: Baltimore gets another middle-infield option after selecting Richie Martin with the first pick. Jackson hit .251/.356/.447 with 15 homers and 22 starts while splitting time between second and short in Double-A last season. He's a better bet than Martin to hit in the majors, but he probably faces more of an uphill battle to make the team. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:48 am

  • Richie Martin to O's with top pick in Rule 5
    Orioles selected SS Richie Martin from the Athletics with the No. 1 overall pick in the Rule 5 Draft.

    Advice: Martin is known more for his defense than offense, but he posted a promising .300/.368/.439 batting line with six home runs and 25 stolen bases over 118 games this past season with the Double-A affiliate of the Athletics. Baltimore will have to carry the 23-year-old shortstop on its major league roster in order to keep him. He could potentially see regular playing time out of the gate with the rebuilding O's.

  • Padres showing interest in Marwin Gonzalez
    According to Ken Rosenthal and Dennis Lin of The Athletic, the Padres are among the teams with interest in free agent Marwin Gonzalez.

    Advice: Gonzalez is a fit for just about every club in the major leagues because of his ability to play all over the diamond defensively. Rosenthal says the Padres are looking for someone who can play shortstop until top prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. is ready and then shift into more of a utility role. Gonzalez had a down year with the Astros in 2018, but the versatile 29-year-old batted .303/.377/.530 with 23 home runs and 90 RBI over 134 games in 2017. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:40 pm

  • Torres could play second or shortstop
    Yankees manager Aaron Boone has no preference on whether Gleyber Torres is at second or short to open next season.

    Advice: Torres could move back to his natural position with Didi Gregorius slated to miss at least the first couple of months following Tommy John surgery. The Yankees will surely bring in an infielder to provide some short-term help, but they have flexibility on which position they'd prefer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:56 pm
  • Tigers sign SS Jordy Mercer for 1 yr, $5.25M
    Fancred's Jon Heyman reports that the Tigers have an agreement in place with free agent shortstop Jordy Mercer.

    Advice: It'll be a one-year, $5.25 million deal with another $250,000 available through performance-based incentives. Mercer still plays good defense at age 32, but he posted a weak .696 OPS with six home runs and 39 RBI over 117 games with the Pirates during the 2018 regular season. He'll be replacing free agent Jose Iglesias at the shortstop position in Detroit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:51 am
